I use Properties/JOINS to join a dbf table to a vector layer
(fields ISO and ISO3 respectively). The Join works, but
I get the following error when I try to save the vector layer as
a new shapefile:
Export to vector file failed.
Error: Feature write errors:
Invalid variant type for field X11: received void with type
Invalid variant type for field X11: received void with type
(many times repeated)
Only 24 of 246 features written.

The new layer is actually written (despite claiming "Export to vector
failed") but only those countries with data in the dbf are available

Instead, the old Vector/Data Management Tools/Join Attributes
works fine. I suggest having that part of the Vector plugin back, even
if redundant, until we reach operational equivalence.

I provide the layer and dbf:

I'm using 1.7.3 from ubuntigis-unstable binaries for ubuntu 10.04
